Thank you for contacting Just Answer. I look forward to assisting you.
There can sometimes be a delay of an hour or more in between my answers because I may be researching the answer to your question, helping other customers, or taking a break. If we're writing late in the evening, I may need to get some sleep and resume helping you the following morning.
Sometimes I'm unable to read your entire question until AFTER I write back to you. So, if I suggest something you already tried, it's because I couldn't see part of your original question. Just write back to me and let me know.
Answer: If you get your son onto social security, you can arrange that his mother receive the social security payments. These will pay for your son's room and board. I don't have a crystal ball, but in this scenario, it is likely that a court will not award child support on top of the social security.
I'd be happy to answer follow-up questions. If you have none, please "accept" my answer and ask for "Jane Doe Deer" the next time you use JustAnswer.com.
I wish you the best.
